V

You like my one letter title today? Why one letter?

“V” is a re-imagining of the 1980’s miniseries about the world’s first encounter with an alien race in which the aliens call themselves The Visitors, and have a seemingly friendly agenda that may or may not be a cover for something more malevolent. “V” stars Elizabeth Mitchell as Erica Evans, Morris Chestnut as Ryan Nichols, Joel Gretsch as Father Jack Landry, Lourdes Benedicto as Valerie Stevens, Logan Huffman as Tyler Evans, Laura Vandervoort as Lisa, with Morena Baccarin as Anna and Scott Wolf as Chad Decker. The series is produced by HDFilms in association with Warner Bros. Television. Scott Peters is executive producer/writer and Steve Pearlman and Jason Hall are executive producers. The pilot was directed and executive produced by Yves Simoneau. (ABC/DAVID GRAY) LOGAN HUFFMAN, LAURA VANDERVOORT, CHRISTOPHER SHYER.

Do you remember when “V” originally aired on NBC in 1983? I do. I was only eight years old, when I saw it. But it stuck in my head forever. The geek in me, silently shrieked when I saw the previews. Who would have thought that I would have married a nerd? And that he was excited for this too.

It starts tonight on ABC. Check your local listings for the time.

I had never even heard of the mini-series before all of this. We watched it last night, and I really liked it. Tom didn't want me to watch it because of the whole aliens eating people thing...he figured I wouldn't sleep. We didn't see any of that in the first episode, so I'm safe until then.It actually held my attention, which hasn't happened since Season 2 of Lost.

I watched the V miniseries as a kid as well. I think even my brother who was only 5 at the time watched it.LOVED IT! Remember when Robin had the half alien/human baby and it came out looking normal and then lashed its lizard tongue out? Remember it like it was yesterday.V and the Beastmaster, favorite movies.
